In our previous blog post we presented the positive impact of physical activity on our mental health and some barriers to it. We acknowledge that by just reading something does not mean that suddenly you will start exercising. Well there must be something more to it. Something we can do to be there for you. So I have taken the decision to overcome all the barriers to physical activity, listed in series , with you. But I need you help..... We must stay in touch and thankfully technology is here to minimise the distance between us. So there are 3 steps you must follow:
